Therefore all SMP providers must ensure to be able to communicate with this new configuration. I've created a phoss SMP Wiki page that assembles the Java software dependencies. To my knowledge all phoss SMP 5.x instances should continue to work without any changes needed.

According to a mail sent out by CEF, the PEPPOL DNS and the SML will not be available on August 28th between 18:00 and 19:00 CEST because of maintenance:

A maintenance will be carried out on DNS in production environment. After the intervention, users will be able to verify the DNS response validity. More information on it could be found here.

The implications are, that a document exchange will not possible during that time, because the necessary DNS resolution will not work.

The activation of DNSSEC failed in that maintenance window and will be retried on a different date and time.

The SMK release was updated to version 3.0.1 which fixes most of the mentioned problems.


My SMP Server 4.0.2 was released. It fixes the compatibility problems introduced by the SMK 3.0.0 release. If you are only using the SML client library, please make sure to use at least version 4.3.1.


Here is a list of issues I've identified with the new SMK 3.0.0:

  • The handling of participant IDs is now case-sensitive (this is not compliant with the BusDox spec)
  • The name of the list DNS servlet changed from "listdns" to "listDNS"
  • The "delete participant" API now requires a valid SMP-ID to be provided (this is incompatible with existing SML client solutions) - the respective changes are contained in my peppol-sml-client as of version 4.3.1
  • The SMK now accepts any participant identifier schemes that are incompatible to the BusDox specs


Finally a first version of the BIS2 document validation is available on this page. Click here to validate your business document.

2015-04-02 - New PEPPOL SMP server implementation available

Based on the CIPA SMP server 2.2.3 I decided to fork my own clone of a PEPPOL SMP. It is available in 2 different versions:

  • peppol-smp-server - an SMP server that uses a relational database (like MySQL) as the backend.
  • peppol-smp-server-lightweight - an SMP server that uses a file-based backend and keeps all information in main memory for performance reasons. Additionally it includes a small management UI.

Both SMP servers use shared components also available on GitHub: peppol-commons, peppol-smp-client and peppol-sml-client.

2014-11-05 - CIPA 2.2.3 released

2014-10-20 - SSL 3.0 vulnerability - POODLE

Because of the SSL 3.0 vulnerability called POODLE (see certain PEPPOL APs may disable SSL 3.0 on their systems.

For the Oracle Java Runtime the code of the AccessPointClient is fine. So when you are using the Oracle JDK no further actions need to be taken. But when using the IBM Java Runtime please make sure that you set the constant SSL_PROTOCOL in class AccessPointClient from SSL to TLS.

A new release of the cipa-start-client was build, which fixes this problem for IBM JDKs. The version number of the fix release is 2.2.2-1 and it can be found in the Joinup Nexus (binary format - and in the CIPA SVN (sources -
